If your business is doing well in this competitive market, congratulations! You must be doing something right. The question is, is business as good as it could be? A good way to test that theory is to bring in some outside business counsel to scan the landscape and see if there is more you could do to expand and grow even more.

Why would I need a business coach?

If your business is doing well in this competitive market, congratulations. You must be doing something right. The question is, is business as good as it could be?

It is not unusual for even the most successful entrepreneurs to get a “second opinion.”

That opinion is usually comes from a business coach. The art of business coaching expands your field of vision. An objective and outside assessment from another professional may see things from a different perspective.

The value in an effective coach can help an entrepreneur see optional approaches to business issues that may be found in other industries. These “crossover” options can bring in some new creativity in marketing. It’s the broader perspective a business person can’t always find on their own, according to Geoff Williams at American Express.

What will a coach do for me?

Few high achievers reach their goals without someone who has been there and help guide and way to success. Great coaches offer their experience, and ask a lot of questions. Part of the coaching process is to encourage their clients to think about their business in new ways and new lights.

Not all business enterprises benefit from coaches. In some cases, individual contributor operations have found business coaching to be helpful. Phoenix, AZ sculptor, Kevin Caron, hired a business coach when his art just wasn’t gaining traction. His coaching really paid off.

“I’m probably the last kind of business owner in the world anyone would expect to have a business coach,” the artist said. He admitted his business would not have taken off the way it did without the vision his coach brought to him.
